If there’s one platform that knows all about trending hashtags, it’s TikTok. While TikTok certainly wasn’t the first platform to use hashtags and won’t be the last, it hasn’t taken long for its users to continue the trend of placing hashtags on their content to try and bring more of their community to their profiles. At this point, it’s less about using hashtags period, and more about which ones you choose to use. Some are going to be much more popular than others, which could end up making a significant difference to your reach.
The Top Trending Hashtags on TikTok
Let’s take a look at some of the trending hashtags that are making the rounds on TikTok right now.
Kylie Jenner kicked this hashtag off by singing ‘rise and shine’ to her daughter Stormi to wake her up. This video soon turned into a TikTok meme, and it’s one of the most popular ones on the social media sharing app, with 1 billion views reached in just one week. Jenner quickly tried to cash in on the popularity of the meme and has now trademarked the phrase.
#inmyroom is simpler than you may think – it’s literally just people going into their room and slamming the door, pretty typical teen angst behavior. However, you will never get bored with a trend like this because most of the time, people add text to them to explain the context a bit. Some of them can be funny, while others tell an interesting story.
If you haven’t heard of the #layerup challenge yet, then let’s talk about it. The #layerup challenge is a challenge that shows what people have to do who live in extreme weather conditions.
